Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Malcesine, Italy your home away from home

Malcesine is one of the most enchanting and enticing villages on Lake Garda, sitting on its north-eastern shores under the careful watch of magnificent Monte Baldo. It is also without a doubt one of the best-positioned villages in the region, being close to beaches, shops, cafes, restaurants, castles and all of the attractions of the lake itself. Malcesine is also the start point for a cable car ride to Monte Baldo and the home of a great range of Lake Garda apartments and villas.

Things to do in Malcesine, Italy

Lake Garda is famous for being an outdoors-lovers paradise, and Malcesine is the start point for some of the finest walks and hikes in the region. The more energetic should consider taking the cable car, which runs from the centre of the village up 6000ft to magnificent Monte Baldo. The drop-off point is near the peak of this rugged mountain range, meaning there are some excellent hiking and climbing opportunities waiting to be taken advantage of, as well as plenty of scenic photography opportunities.

Even if you do not want to go hiking up it you can still enjoy Monte Baldo, as it can be seen from all around Malcesine. Whether you are enjoying a spot of breakfast in your Malcesine villa, rejuvenating with a strong espresso in one of the village’s cafes, or eating outside a local restaurant on a balmy summers evening, the mountain looms large and provides a unique backdrop.

One of the main sites in Malcesine is the magnificent renaissance castle, which towers over the lake and has a fascinating history that dates back hundreds of years. The whole village has retained its medieval feel, with traditional businesses such as bakeries and pasta shops still doing a healthy trade, and combining well with more modern attractions such as beachside snack bars and popular pizzerias.

Location is wonderful with stunning views. Having a small balcony off the sitting room and a terrace on the ground floor made it easy to enjoy the warm summer nights. We were there as parents of the groom for a wedding - location perfect and gave the wedding party somewhere to rest during photos. Barbara was extremely helpful.

The property is wonderfully kept, with a nice, serviceable kitchen, 2 comfortable bedrooms and a third bedroom with a pull out bed (still works well). We were able to cook in the kitchen easily. The best part of the house is the terrace with the wonderful view overlooking the lake- we used it every day, and even watched a wonderful thunderstorm role in. We were provided with nice towels, wine on arrival, and all other amenities. It comfortably slept 6. Rosario is a very kind host, and is happy when his guests are happy. A car is reocmended for the property, although you can walk to the water (lots of access), walk to the mount baldo cable lift, and walk to town (although carrying groceries back takes some stamina). There are also very nice restaurants in both directions serving inexpensive and tasty cuisine. One note is that there is a security deposit, which was asked for in cash, which we were not aware of when we arrived (we thought it was through homeaway). Overall, this is a very realxing place to spend a week or more on Lake Garda. We would love to come back.

                                                                                                We visited Malcesine for a wedding in July and picked La Pervinca because we wanted a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town centre. The ground floor apartment with terrace was just perfect as we could lie on the sunloungers in the shade of the olive trees listening to cicadas and the occasional hum of the cable car passing nearby. The odd dog barking at the odd moped going past, but other than that no traffic noise. The only downside of the location is the necessary walk to reach the town or lakeside. Although short it is uphill to return and in hot weather quite a struggle. But we knew this would be the case in July when the temperatures were 34 degrees, and knowing we could have a shower and lie down in the shade at the end made it OK. The apartment was well-equipped with plenty of space especially in the bathroom and a comfortable bed. Air-conditioning would have been welcome, but there was usually a breeze being higher up . The view from the roof terrace was lovely, especially at night, and it was wonderful to have so much outside space to use. Our host Massimo was extremely welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay here again but at a cooler time of year!
